Triple Grain Trail Mix Breakfast Cookie

Hola, mi amigas … how is everyone doing today?!?!

I’ve been in a mood lately – – a cookie kind of mood ( when am I not in a cookie kind of mood)

And when I’m in a mood … I gotta gotta gootttaaa do something about it.

So I did.

And taaa-daaaaa!!

Remember how I was telling you guys about Sarah, my April Foodie Pen Pal … (side note: STOP SLACKING sign up for May buddies … you get yummy stuff in the mail, and get to meet spanky people!!)  

Back on track … remember how I was telling you about Sarah. Well I sent her these … as well as some gourmet chocolate… a cute cupcake change purse and I also sent her these cookies.

And now I want to share them with you 🙂

I don’t mean to be bossy … but make them.

They’re yummy ….

They’re relatively healthy … relatively … or so I told myself.

I’ve actually been able to convince myself that these are so healthy I need to have them for breakfast 😀

Cookies for breakfast.

Ohhh what a concept – what an idea – – what a dream come true!!

Besides taking over the world, my other ambition in life is to completely satisfy the cookie monster.

True story.

Now that I think about it, it’s possible that we were probably meant to be best friends – he’s cute, cuddly, eats cookies 24-7…  what else do you need in a BFF?!?!

Go ahead … have a cookie or two (dozen) for breakfast!!
